When you think of Oregon, you probably immediately think of Portland, a city known for being a haven of creativity, alternative lifestyles, and hipster central. Well, think again. There are many, many benefits of living in Oregon.
Whether you are searching for vacation homes for sale along the rocky Pacific coastline, seeking luxury cabins for sale or mountain homes within close proximity to skiing (such as Mt Hood real estate and the Oregon Cascades), or, in lieu of rural real estate want something more urban, there is a slice of Oregon to suit any taste and lifestyle.
The benefits of living in Oregon are aplenty. Not only is the cost of living in Oregon lower than its neighboring states (there is no sales tax and buying a home in Oregon, for example, is typically less expensive than in its neighbor to the north, Washington), but Oregon is less crowded, too.
In addition, the confines of urban life can be escaped in as little as a 1.5 hour drive to either the coast or the many rivers and gorges that run through this great state. Which brings me to the tremendous natural beauty of the state, which is, by far, one of the largest benefits of living in Oregon. There are opportunities for snow sports, hiking, fishing, camping, hunting, and any favorite outdoor activity you can think of. The wilderness will astound you and makes Oregon one of the greatest recreational destinations in the country.
